MacOS X Mountain Lion parental control running at near 100%

After recently upgrading to Mountain Lion I now have the process named “parentalcontrolsd” running 24/7 even though I do NOT use any parental controls.

58174 parentalcontrolsd root 98.7 9 72.3 MB Intel (64 bit) 138.4 MB

Simple work-around: remove all settings from parental controls

  1. Disable parental controls on all users.
  2. Delete the folder /Library/Application Support/Apple/ParentalControls
  3. Restart the Mac
  4. Enable parental controls again (if needed).
